Christopher Nolan is leaving no stone unturned to create excitement for his next film. Titled as Tenet, it is one of the much-awaited films of 2020. The sci-fi thriller was supposed to release in July. However, due to the pandemic, it got postponed multiple times. The film will now release on August 26 at selective places.
Coming back to how Nolan is creating excitement, he first cleared that it’s not a time travel drama. However, the trailer showed us John David Washington’s ‘The Protagonist’ meddling with time. The Inception director says it’s a time inversion thriller where the lead character wants to prevent World War III.
Talking about Christopher Nolan’s films, they are not easy to understand for everyone. If we as the audience have to deeply think to get the story, imagine what happens to those who work in the movie? Well, that’s what The Dark Knight director told Jennifer Lame, the editor of Tenet. He told Jen that this will be the hardest movie she ever edits.
About the same, the Tenet director told IndiWire, “Working for the first time with editor Jen Lame was a real pleasure. I joked with her when she first came on that this might be the hardest movie any editor has ever had to cut — and I’m not sure she would dispute that right now [laughs].”
Christopher Nolan added, “Working out all the aspects of portraying time running in different directions meant going beyond what was down on the page, as the execution lay with a successful translation of the visual.”
Meanwhile, along with John David Washington, Tenet also stars Robert Pattinson, Dimple Kapadia and Elizabeth Debicki. It will release in 70 countries on August 26. In the US and China, the thriller will hit the screens on September 3 and 4, respectively.
